Spiderman (10 mins)

Set Up

Make a 20x20 area. Spread the players out around the area with a ball per player. The coach starts as the evil spiderman.

Instructions

The coach chases the players and fires webs (pinnies) at the players balls. If the ball gets hit that player becomes frozen. For the frozen players to become free again they have to get a high 5 from any of the other free players.

Let all of the players have a turn as spiderman.

Coaching Points

Small touches of the ball so that you can keep it under control.

Get your head up so that you can dribble towards space and away from the spiderman.

Use quick changes of direction to move/escape the spiderman.

Get your head up and look for space to run into, also look for the shark.
